    As booklovers who met working in the book industry, when I realized we could get married at our local public library it was an easy yes. On top of the venue being perfect for us in that regard, it is so stunningly beautiful, and that was before we even saw the outdoor courtyard where our ceremony took place. Farida was our main point of contact and she was absolutely incredible. She worked with our vendors and us to make our day exceptional. I can’t imagine our wedding having been anywhere else, I’ve already said it but perfect is the only word for it. Thank you to Farida and the entire KPL team for making our day so special! Can’t recommend this venue enough.

    Honestly my favourite part about hosting our wedding at the KPL in downtown kichener was that every space is already so beautiful that all we really added were personal touches (photos, signs, etc.) and what existed already there lent to beautiful photos and such a fun time! The staff there, although have only just started hosting weddings, were professional and courteous and happy to make arrangements to make our day special for us. I would in a heartbeat host more weddings there, too bad I’m only going to have one!

    KPL worked with us to make sure all of our questions were answered, went above and beyond to help us utilize different spaces in the library, and helped make our vision a reality! The venue’s communication was always timely, we never waited more than a few hours to hear back. They coordinated behind the scenes wiith our planner and made the space available to us well in advance to make sure we could set up on time. Our vendors all commented on how lovely it was to work with KPL.
